Canadian media design and development firm celebrates a decade of successful business and awesome clients.

Face3 Media
Our longevity has been a completely organic, word-of-mouth progression.

Canadian media design and development firm Face3 Media celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2011. Founded by Gino Pagliuca and Enzo Palermo, Face3 Media began as a Web design firm in an apartment office in Saint Leonard, Quebec. At that time, the company was focused on creating engaging and user-friendly websites influenced by the diverse interests of its music- and movie-obsessed founders.
That environment helped the company create the first website for Buffalo Jeans, which also involved filming website content and TV spots. The dynamic duo then collaborated with the Artitalia Group on a corporate identity and brand, creating, in the process, a successful ad campaign for its three merged companies (Artitalia, Hemsley and IVC). This was followed by a well-received, unofficial video for independent art rock band Deerhoof, which Face3 Media created with the help of animator Alex Fellows, a longtime collaborator.
These early experiences led to design and development work with clothing companies (Buffalo Jeans, Moto Jeans and Underground Clothing) webzines (LatinoReview, Comingsoon and PopMatters), app makers (They co-developed Right Hand Man, a popular iPhone seduction app) and more (WhyComputerScience and Ruscio Studio). Throughout, Face3 Media has developed long-lasting working relationships with the JoBlo Movie Network and Evenko’s Osheaga and Heavy MTL music festivals, among others. “We’ve been very fortunate over the years to work with a number of incredible companies and clients, and our longevity has been a completely organic, word-of-mouth progression,” says Art Director Palermo.
Now based in Montreal’s Mile End, Face3 Media has grown into a one-stop media design and development shop, with services ranging from custom programming, art and creative direction, video, photography, illustration, Web content and marketing. This, according to Creative Director Pagliuca, bodes well for the future. “We’re more versatile than we’ve ever been, and we’re very well positioned for the next ten years and beyond.”
